Lessons learned from January-thru-July 1.

It’s the sixth month of the year now. This is the month when plans get made. When projects happen. I am not going to have access to my computer for several days (explanation soon), so I am going to work a lot right now and then I am going to think, write, read, sleep, and practice many things. I have a lot of data to sift through. It has been one of the hardest years of my life; preceded by a year that was probably among the most life-changing, personality altering, and important. I am a different person and I think I will finish 2011 learning to understand this new Thing I have become. I watched videos of the Christmas 2009 Denise Hudson … and I don’t understand her. She is not me. I love her, I miss her. I need to mourn her and get over her… and learn what I can about her because I need her now, a little bit.

I need a list, because I have done so much and I forget that. I still have so much to do!

1. just got back from doing errands. a little bit stressed out. got a lot to do.
2. The Cylon has a problem with his screen so it will have to be replaced. This will take a week or so, possibly longer. So I have to back up and finish a lot of things before this occurs. Scramble.
3. This is kind of fortuitous. Actually. There are some things I have noticed (and “you,” of course is “me” here… but it could also of course be YOU, you, you, *you* … you, You, YoU, you-youditty-youyou, y’all, etc. Insert whatevermonkey secretcode Dramabahamamama in here. I like to shoot straight when I don’t think it will get my thrown in social prison (you don’t believe me, do …you):
-I have let some stuff slide. I have not really been taking good care of myself. This is not okay.
-I have been allowing things to happen to me that are Wrong and Bad. Your circumstances should ALWAYS make you feel special and important. If you are ever in a situation where you don’t; get out of it. If you’re doing it to someone – stop. There is NOTHING worse than feeling obliterated. There is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with me. We all deserve to be faced. If you cannot see the face of a situation, but only always its side, then show it your back.
-Eat good food and don’t abuse it.
-Don’t drink too much.
-Don’t expect too much of yourself, but expect more from you – and from others.
-Get enough sleep
-Make your environment wonderful to be in, a delightful garden of what you want. People, places, and things. To be in; to look forward to.
-Don’t go looking for trouble, trouble sees you fine (this, or something like it, is a fine and dandy song lyric I heard lately)
-accept the truth of things that cannot be changed and live as best you can.
-be flexible


Do things you enjoy.

4. I have songs to write, and arrange.
5. I have more personal things to say, but I am Den, and that is not my way.

I had a nice day. Nice days are welcome here.
I like nice. I enjoy being happy.

  1. Gosh yeah, what a year of transformations. I was just thinking about how I have nearly been in Austin for 2 months, but it is also quite interesting to think that it has been 6 months since the first of 2011. Wow.

    Sounds like you are realizing good things and getting up and dusting yourself off and regrouping and all that good stuff. It’s kind of a daily practice really isn’t it? That is what I am finding out about all the new habits I am taking on. Falling off is inevitable, getting back on is a choice.

  2. That’s what air conditioning is for!!!!! hahaha!

    No seriously, I have my few big goals on my bathroom mirror to see every morning and a few pictures of things I really want, and when I come to a decision, I think to my goals and things I want, and I say, “How bad do I want this right now, and how bad to I want my stuff?” Sometimes I want the right now more than the future, but it sure helps with my indecisiveness and getting back up!
